Note to NY Times reporters.
The best way to relate to Alaskans is to dress in light brown coats and wear white gloves and then go walk around in dense wooded areas.

Somehow investigating the story on john Edwards wasn't within their capabilities, but now they are going make up for lost time.

I am hoping for some serious frostbite.

I don't think the Slimes can afford the travel expenses. I'd be concerned about getting reimbursed.

Antlers. You forgot the antlers. The investigators should also wear cute little antlers to show their solidarity with Alaskan wildlife.

Sarah Palin is a time bomb set to go off and destroy the GOP chances in 2008. I have it on good authority that on March 15, 2004 she put an aluminum can in the regular garbage instead of the recycling. Didn't the McCain people do any homework on this choice?

So, if the NYT didn’t (and they didn’t) send out a hit squad to dig up dirt on Obama,

are they still going to claim “objectivity”?

Yeah dat.

Newspaperman/talk show host Howie Carr raised the excellent point on his radio show the other day that a lot of these press hacks have dropped any semblance of impartiality in covering the 2008 elections because, frankly, a lot of them will be flipping burgers four years from now. This is their last gasp at influencing an election.

Of course they are. How could any self-respecting New York Times editor show his or her face on the Manhattan dinner party circuit if their paper gets scooped by the National Enquirer?

FOLKS THIS IS WHERE PUSHBACK HAPPENS.

Can we ID the location of these reporters?

Can we ID where they are and who they are talking to?

Can we have conservatives confront them?

I think some PUSHBACK can neutralize the NY Times.

The Times already had to retract one article on Palin. Proof that liberals never learn anything.

I wish the Times would investigate some of the concerns I have about Barack Obama:

- he wasn’t properly vetted;

- he doesn’t write his own speeches;

- he lacks the experience to be Governor of Alaska.

I bet they’re at the Captain Cook Hotel, think there’s a Sheraton or Marriott there too. If on nice expense account the Girdwood Aleyeska Resort would be nice.

They can save their time and money. Olberman already said last night they have the dirt to down her. A liberal military man said she should not have released the date her son is leaving for Iraq.

If The New York Slimes wanted to do an investigation in connection with this year's presidential election, I would suggest they start with the most fundamental issue: Is Barack Obama constitutionally qualified to be the POTUS? More particularly, they could attempt to find a bona fide birth certificate for him from any state or jurisdiction of the US to document that he is a natural born citizen of the United States. And if they can't find such a birth certificate, they could let their readers know that he is presumably constitutionally ineligible.

Of course, the Slimes doesn't have the journalistic integrity to attempt such a vital investigation, but would rather concentrate on dirt digging re Palin.
